How Does Volkswagen Cabriolet Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volkswagen Cabriolet's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Volkswagen. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Volkswagen specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volkswagen’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volkswagen Cabriolet

It’s wise to have your Volkswagen Cabriolet alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Cabriolet dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
